L.I.A. (Latinos in Actions) class has started a new tradition. L.I.A. class asked everyone in the school, teachers included, to write a letter to Santa. During seventh period on December 3, the L.I.A. brought around papers so all the students and teachers could write letters to Santa. The L.I.A. students found out from Mr. Beebe, the Spanish and L.I.A. teacher, that if you bring letters to Santa to Macy's Department Store, they give one dollar to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The L.I.A. students were the first ones to write letters to Santa.
Gaby Torres, a ninth grade student in the L.I.A. class, said, “The letters to Santa get everyone in the Christmas spirit, and we are helping the kids in the Make-A-Wish foundation that need our help.”
According to Stefania Lopez, a ninth grade student in the L.I.A. class, her favorite part of doing the letters to Santa was that they got to do something simple yet fun for the holiday, and that they are giving to someone who needs it. Stefania said, “It reminds us what to be thankful for.”
